Earmarking $10,000 for AIDS support groups and helping the Chamber of Commerce for the first time in more than a decade, the City Council unanimously adopted a $24.5-million budget. In a memo to the council, City Manager Kenneth C. Frank said the city is in "moderately good financial shape" with a balanced budget and a 10% reserve, but is hampered by severe staff shortages. Future budgets must accommodate 20 more city employees if services are to rise to a reasonable level, Frank said.

So far, Joy Lingenfelter had counseled a woman with a stray dog, fielded a call about a deer with two broken legs, scooped a dead dove off Laguna Canyon Road and accepted a snake in a shoe box.

One of two animal control officers in this city, Lingenfelter never knows what surprises await her when she arrives at the Laguna Beach Animal Shelter to begin her 10-hour shift.

Leaders of a center for homeless people that was forced to close last month say they are searching for a new office. They hope to reopen within six months. Marsha Bode, former director of the Episcopal Service Alliance branch on Coast Highway, said the program is missed by the homeless. "What ESA was for them was their home more than anything else," said Bode, who now distributes sack lunches in a park to those who had received hot lunches at the agency. "They miss the showers a lot."

After 11 years of operating without help from the city, the Laguna Beach Chamber of Commerce is asking for $8,000 from the next city budget. The chamber received $30,000 a year from the city before Proposition 13 was passed for "efforts to promote Laguna Beach," officials said. That money was cut off when Laguna Beach was looking for ways to trim expenses in the wake of Proposition 13, said City Manager Kenneth C. Frank.

Meredith and Eugene Gratz want to build their dream house on a Laguna Beach hillside, but the size of the proposed 5,200-square-foot home and the shadow it would cast onto a neighbor's house caused the review board to reject the design.
